Hey guys. I recently posted my Crypto Shirts site here (http://crypto-shirts.myshopify.com/
) and told myself that I MUST be able to accept the big three (Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin). Well as it stands, Shopify has a couple Bitcoin gateways in place (CoinBase and BitPay) but in order to accept Litecoin or Dogecoin it must be a manual transaction.
So I contacted GoCoin asking how I could integrate their gateway into Shopify and this was their response:
Unfortunately, it's not possible at this time to integrate GoCoin with your Shopify shopping cart.
However, we have actually already built the integration for Shopify, and only need their payments team to make it a priority to enable. So please contact your rep at Shopify and let them know it's important to you to be able to accept payments through GoCoin. Every merchant like you tells them that gets us all one step closer to Shopify allowing its first multi-crypto payment processor.
So many of you have been asking, "What can I do to help Litecoin?". Well here is where we need your help. In order to get GoCoin as a merchant gateway, it needs be requested through their official request thread (http://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/payments-shipping-fulfilment/t/post-your-gateway-requests-here-136389
) . If we can get enough requests fir GoCoin as a payment gateway, it will not only help me, but as Matt from GoCoin mentioned, they'll be the first multi-crypto payment processor on Shopify! This will open the doors to MANY shopify stores and allow us to pay with Litecoin and Dogecoin.
